Peter Parker: I'm responsible...
May Parker: For what?
Peter Parker: For what happened to Uncle Ben...
May Parker: But, you were at the library, you were doing your homework.
Peter Parker: He drove me to the library, but I never went in.
May Parker: What do you mean?
Peter Parker: [sobbing] I went someplace else, someplace where I thought I could win some money, to buy a car, because I wanted to impress Mary Jane. It happened so fast... I won the money, the guy wouldn't pay me, then he got robbed... the thief was running towards me... I could have stopped him, but I wanted to take revenge... I let him go, I let him get away. He wanted a car, he tried to take Uncle Ben's. Uncle Ben said no... and then he shot him. Uncle Ben was killed that night for being the only one who did the right thing. I held his hand when he died... I've tried to tell you so many times...
Rosalie Octavius: You need to sleep soundly tonight.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Did Edison sleep before he turned on the light bulb? Did Marconi sleep before he turned on the radio? Did Beethoven sleep before he wrote the fifth?
Peter Parker: Did Bernoulli sleep before he found the curves of quickest descent?
Dr. Otto Octavius: Ahhh, Rosie, I love this boy.
Peter Parker: Um, I don't have time for girls right now.
Harry Osborn: What are you - dead?
Peter Parker: [realizes he may have recovered his super-powers] I'm back! I'm back! Peter Parker: [falls down on a car] My back. My back...
Peter Parker: [referring to Ock's fusion project] Now, tell me how to stop it!
Dr. Otto Octavius: It can't be stopped. It's self-sustaining now.
Peter Parker: Think!
Dr. Otto Octavius: Unless... the river. Drown it!
[a tentacle grabs Peter's arm]
Dr. Otto Octavius: I'll do it.
Dr. Otto Octavius: [talking to his arms] Listen. Listen... to me now. Listen... to ME now!
May Parker: We need a hero, couragous sacrificing people, setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero, people line up for 'em, cheer for them, scream their names, and years later tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who told them to HOLD ON a second longer. I believe theres a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble. And finally gets us to die with pride. Even though sometimes we have to be steady and give up the thing we want most, even our dreams.
Mary Jane: [on the giant spider web] I think I always knew all this time who you really were.
Peter Parker: Then you know why we can't be together. Spider-Man will always have enemies. I can't let you take that risk. I will always be Spider-Man. You and I can never be...
Harry Osborn: Now... lets see who's behind the mask.
[pulls off mask and reveals Peter]
Harry Osborn: [stumbles backwards] Peter? No... it can't be.
Spider-Man: [gets up] Harry, where is she? He's got MJ!
Harry Osborn: No... all he wanted was the tritium.
Spider-Man: Tritium? He's making the machine again. When he does, she'll die alone with half of New York, now where is he?
Harry Osborn: [pause] Peter... you killed my father.
Spider-Man: There are bigger things happening here than me and you.
[last lines]
Mary Jane Watson: Go get 'em, tiger.
